Base 12: Little Big Show Opening Reception

  • 888 Newark Avenue Jersey City, NJ, 07306 United States (map)

Join us for the opening reception of Little Big Show, presented byApostrophe NYC and Mana BSMT.

Little Big Show is a group exhibition that investigates mitigated experience and its effect on viewing art in a post-digital era. The project was conceived and produced by Apostrophe NYC, featuring works by Base 12—a group of twelve New York City-based emerging and experimental artists working in a quasi-collective, currently in residence at Mana BSMT. Little Big Show critiques assumptions of virtual versus “real” representation by positing two allied narratives in sequential galleries: the first in an exhibition of miniature digital reproductions, the second in a series of original artworks. Encapsulating a world enthralled with virtual interpretation through social media, Little Big Show challenges our notions of representation by interrogating the value of the analog, unmediated experience.
